KVM: x86: fix for buffer overflow in handling of MSR_KVM_SYSTEM_TIME (CVE-2013-1796)
Andy Honig [Mon, 11 Mar 2013 16:34:52 +0000 (09:34 -0700)]
commit c300aa64ddf57d9c5d9c898a64b36877345dd4a9 upstream.

If the guest sets the GPA of the time_page so that the request to update the
time straddles a page then KVM will write onto an incorrect page.  The
write is done byusing kmap atomic to get a pointer to the page for the time
structure and then performing a memcpy to that page starting at an offset
that the guest controls.  Well behaved guests always provide a 32-byte aligned
address, however a malicious guest could use this to corrupt host kernel
memory.

Tested: Tested against kvmclock unit test.
